Infra-Red light ?

  1. I found this 150w infra red philips infrabright light mostly used for muscle therapy but it emits a really dark red color and plenty of heat were its aimed at. Can this kind of lamp be used during flowering for mj? would it add extra light in the far red 700nm spectrum?
  2. I dont understand where people get that marijuana needs heat. Heat is the absolute worst enemy of marijuana during flower. Ventilation is a must to get the fresh air in and heat out.
  3. Infrared equals heat. So you have a heat light/lamp. I'm sure it probably does emit some wavelength of light that plants could use but unless it's super cold in your grow spot, I don't think that light will do anything for you.
  4. No, at least not for anything beneficial unless your grow space is unusually cold (and in which case this lamp would be addressing that cold for only 12 of every 24 hours).
  5. Do it.
